Danai Gurira, who has played Michonne since season three, will be leaving the AMC zombie drama after season 10, according toThe Hollywood Reporter. TWD, currently in its ninth season, was renewed for season 10 earlier this week. ET has reached out to AMC and Gurira’s rep for comment.
THR reports that Gurira — who entered the Marvel universe with her role as Okoye in Black Panther last year — will return in a limited capacity for the upcoming season, likely only a handful of episodes interspersed throughout season 10. According to the outlet, the actress will then then likely segue to the three Walking Dead movies that former star Andrew Lincoln is set to star in.
